today is the last day of print & pattern before christmas, and what better images to finish the year on than the christmas 2008 collection from japanese company decole. this years designs have a cute folksy theme and fresh colour palette. as we leave christmas designs behind, i'll be back in the new year looking towards spring collections. before we know it the shops will be full of valentines and easter design. many thanks to everyone who clicked onto print & pattern this year, all those who contributed to next years book, and all my sponsors who make it possible. merry christmas and happy new year !

the exciting thing about la familia green is you never know what you will see next. designer mollie green, based in chicago, creates such a diverse collection that theres always something interesting to see. either hand cut and collaged from paper, or printed on a gooco machine all their cards can be seen here.
it may be too late to get these cards for christmas, but we can still admire their beautiful design. kirk and eva jorgensen started the sycamore street press in columbus, ohio at the beginning of 2008. each design is created by hand using a vintage letterpress.
